Chef Paul Shoemaker had a Chumash Indian blessing ceremony when Savory, his Malibu restaurant, opened. We’d like to believe that the sacred vibe of the Chumash permeates the Californiabistro, and that Savory will be a success.
Many elements are there for the beach town residents: an elegant, yet casual and welcoming décor; very fresh local produce; tasty cuisine; low prices (the most expensive dish is $16); a quality wine list; and very good service.
